Review: A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne

 I received a free advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Kevin Hearne is an accomplished writer, well versed in fantasy, science fiction, mythology -- the hodge podge of the genre that makes up speculative fiction.  This first book in a new triology, The Seven Kennings, is A Plague of Giants.  In the first pages, the framing of the story is similar to other books taking a narrative from a character and presenting it from a storyteller, historian, or bard.  Getting past this trend, the characters are well developed with histories and purpose beyond the main storyline.  There is a large framework that characters actually live in, and that typically makes for a very good read.
